Adam's Catfish House Restaurant Review

: Belle Chasse is a bit of a journey from the city, but those who know that Adam's Catfish House is a worthy destination for its namesake fare won't let the drive deter them. What people come for is the fresh, properly fried catfish served in daunting portions, along with such sides as oversize hush puppies and coleslaw. Tradition departs in Adam's own catfish salad, made with fried catfish and hard-cooked egg bound with a touch of creamy tartar sauce. Eat it like a dip with the buttery "Captain's crackers" included on the side, or simply savor it by the spoonful. The menu is short and all about the catfish --- no desserts and no alcohol. The restaurant is a no-frills kind of place when it comes to d├ęcor, but the friendliness of the staff provides all the atmosphere necessary for a pleasant experience.
